– Santa outfits and pajamas
– Masks including Mr. and Mrs. Claus, Bad Elf, Crazy Gingerbread, Festive Luchador and others.
– Three Christmas-themed car horns.
– Christmas trees at legion square and in all apartments, yachts, and stilt houses.

It adds: “Beast vs. Slasher, an intense new Adversary Mode for GTA Online, is out today on PS4, Xbox One and PC. A team of Beasts blessed with superhuman abilities must evade the clutches of the pursuing Slashers. To help them on their merry way, Beasts are gifted not only with wild speed, but can leap over buildings and have temporary invisibility.”

“To give the Slasher Team a fighting chance, they’re split into three sub-teams: Demolition, Heavy and Assault armed with RPGs, Miniguns and for the first time in GTA Online… Railguns. And if being armed to the teeth isn’t enough, Slashers are also equipped with thermal vision to help seek out and bring down the elusive Beasts. Supporting 4-10 players, both teams will need to stay on the move and work together with their teammates to prevail in this new Adversary Mode.”

The DLC is available from Dec. 21 to Jan. 5.

“Southern San Andreas Super Autos has bolstered its showroom inventory with the permanent addition of the brand new Declasse Tampa for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Now that players can own up to five properties in GTA Online, make sure you take full advantage of all that extra garage space and pick up this ferocious new sleigh,” Rockstar added.
